The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man: Islands of Adventure
OK~ More excitement on the Iowa to Florida road trip. Universal's Islands of Adventure continues to amaze this family! On March 8, 2012, the Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man re-opened after an extensive refurbishment project. I felt lucky to take a ride on this attraction one week after it re-opened.
Here's a glimpse into what the changes were and what you can expect if you opt to check out the Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man.
While waiting in line, there is a lot to keep your mind busy. With desks at The Daily Bugle to observe and movies playing overhead, the line does move rather quickly.
Once you get close to hopping on this attraction, you will grab a pair of these!
This is what you sit in while experiencing The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man!
The attraction is filled with all new, high definition, 3-D animation. The special effects within this attraction were amazing.........I felt like I was in the story. Yes- and let's just say that Spider-Man got a little close and personal. The special effects were fabulous, as was the 400 foot free fall experience. I highly recommend that you take a ride with Spider-Man while visiting Islands Of Adventure at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.
Keep in mind that youngsters can ride if they are 40" tall and accompanied by an adult. I do think that most kids that are 40" tall would enjoy this ride, as it's not too extreme. It is a dark ride, so if you have kids that don't like the dark, they should probably not ride this attraction. Universal Studios does offer a kid swap program, worth looking into if your kids aren't quite tall enough to ride. Enjoy the park......Book that family vacation to Universal Studios in Orlando today- your family will thank you! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
*My family and I were guests in the park for one day in March of 2012. I did not receive any monetary compensation for this post. The opinions expressed here are mine and nobody else's.
